Eric 'Broadway' Jones: Alright, Swoop.

Dwayne 'Swoop' Simpson: What?

Eric: We're gonna step up our game.

Dwayne: Okay.

Eric: We're gonna do some drill work now.

Dwayne: Okay. Okay.

Eric: We'll work on some crossover drills.

Dwayne: I wanna get better, man.

Eric: That's what we're here for.

Dwayne: Okay.

Eric: We're here to get you better and work on some drills. So we got the crossover drills and Roadrunner's gonna display three crossover drills that you can work on at home. Now, obviously sometimes you gotta practice by yourself.

Dwayne: Okay. Yeah, that's fine.

Eric: You not gonna always have somebody in the gym there with you. You can even try this stuff at home, in the backyard, or in the basketball court by yourself.

Dwayne: Really? That's good for me because I don't have any friends anyway.

Eric: Well, that's a personal problem. But anyway, so, what we're gonna do is we're gonna let the Roadrunner display..

Dwayne: Okay.

Eric: ...some crossover drills.

Dwayne: Right.

Eric: And then he can do it with the chair.

Dwayne: A chair? Where we gonna get a chair from? Oh!

Eric: I just happen to have one right here.

Dwayne: Okay.

Eric: You always gotta be prepared.

Dwayne: Okay, nice.

Eric: See that? Nice folding chair. Roadrunner, you're gonna attack the chair. Anytime you're doing drills, you wanna make sure you go right up on this chair like he's a defender and you wanna attack this guy. Attack him! See that? This is a crossover drill. Damn!

Dwayne: Oh, okay.

Eric: Crossover drill. Go back. Now, show him that one more time, other way. Crossover drill right at the cone.

Dwayne: Okay.

Eric: Now, this is called a killer cross.

Dwayne: A killer cross.

Eric: Yeah, this crossover killed somebody at one time.

Dwayne: Okay, okay. See how it is.

Eric: Now, watch this. Now, here's the killer cross. Bam!

Dwayne: Oh!

Eric: [indecipherable 01:21] by Tim Hardaway.

Dwayne: Okay, the one, two.

Eric: That's the killer cross. Right at the chair.

Dwayne: Oh, the U-tip.

Eric: Yeah, yeah. The U-tip, two step.

Dwayne: Two step. Yeah.

Eric: This is an in and out cross. You go in and out. Take a minute out, and you exaggerate it in the crossover.

Dwayne: Marvelous.

Eric: Right at 'em. Bam! In and out. Hey Swoop, you try.

Dwayne: No, I wanna see the AI cross. I like that one.

Eric: Oh, you wanna go with the long, exaggerated Alex Iverson crossover. See that? Step with the foot.

Dwayne: Oh, that's the one I know. That's the one I was expecting to see.

Eric: Show it, show it, show it. I used to come down. It could get dangerous.

Dwayne: Now I had to come down, you know what I'm saying?

Eric: Yeah..Woah, I thought you was gonna trip over that chair.

Dwayne: No, no, I got it! Cause I used it attacking.

Eric: You attacked the chair.

Dwayne: I attack it, get outta here.

Eric: No, no, no, no. The chair didn't do anything to you.

Dwayne: But you said attack it.

Eric: No, no. Attack it with the dribble. Oh! With the dribble.

Dwayne: I'm working on it.

Eric: Now, that's three drills you can work on at home, in the backyard, or the basketball court by yourself. You don't have a chair?

Dwayne: Yep.

Eric: Use a cone!

Dwayne: Yep.

Eric: You don't have a cone? Use one of those sneakers on the wires. You know, old whatever.

Dwayne: Whatever, whatever works.

Eric: Yeah, use your Mom!

Dwayne: My mom! How about my baby sister?

Eric: No. You don't wanna attack your sister.

Dwayne: Why not? She's gets on my nerves.

Eric: Cause, anyway. That is the crossover drills that you can work on at home, displayed by the Roadrunner, easy and effective. Keep your head up. Go and attack the chair. Keep the ball under control. That's a rap.
